Curtis Hairston

LP (Item 23611) Atlantic, 1986 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.60 11

A killer debut from Curtis Hairston – an overlooked 80s soul singer who should have made it big, given the strength of this set! The album's got a tight groove, but is never too commercial – a bit away from other Atlantic soul of the time, thanks to some solid studio help from Kae Williams of BB&Q Band, a group with whom Hairston had worked previously. Williams arranged and produced half the set – the rest was done by Greg Radford – and the album mixes Hairston's well-crafted vocals with a mixture of upbeat rhythms and mellower tunes, the latter of which we like the best. Titles include "You're My Shining Star", "Chillin Out", "All We Have Is Love", "Take Charge", "The Morning After", and "Hold On (For Me)". (Cover has a promo stamp, cutout notch & factory sticker.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Columbia, 1978. Very Good
Massive work from the great Cheryl Lynn – and a key bridge between late 70s disco and the newer grooves of the 80s club scene! The album's a mix of midtempo groovers with a few mellower tracks – and it's got a tight, slightly jazzy sound that was very fresh at the time, and which still ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chimneyville/Atco, 1973. Near Mint-
An excellent album from King Floyd – possibly his best, and proof that the harder side of southern soul sound was still alive and well in the 70s! The record was one of the first few big ones to come out of the Malaco studios in Jackson – which would soon become one of the biggest hubs ... LP, Vinyl record album
